Chateau Latour Pauillac Premier Grand Cru Classe 2006
March 2015 Re-tasted after fining and decanting. The 1986 LATOUR displayed young colors, faint nose and dried cranberry and bing cherry on the palate. Nice and balanced/ seamless finally for a 5 grape. Delicate and still pouring fine. I wish my taste was not as cold, Coming directly from a cellar. 1986 Latour still DRINKING fine. Enjoy.
External Reviews for Chateau Latour Pauillac Premier Grand Cru Classe
The very cold climate during the maturation cycle slowed down te development of the vine. As a result it was more difficult to obtain a good level of phenolic maturity. The climate in September helped to obtain round and soft tannins. The impression of the "Grand Vin" is of dense, ripe fruit, full and fleshy. The structure is powerful and intense, and the finish is impressively long. Without doubt, Latour 2003 will be one of the ver best vintages of the estate and, in the best sense, one of the most atypical. Robert Parker 100.
Dense and concentrated, with depth and richness of cassis, raspberry, smoke and tobacco aromas and flavors; very long and tough with tannin. Best from 2000 through 2005. (HS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Latour, Chateau 750ml
Seems to be gaining in strength and depth. Incredibly rich, with meat, plum, cassis and tobacco flavors, harmonious, clean and long. Beginning to be approachable.--Latour vertical. Best after 2003. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Latour, Chateau 1500ml
